The Foundation

The Foundation was formed in June, 2016 by Jacques Pépin and his closest family to translate Jacques’ inspirational love of cooking, mastery of classic technique, and renowned teaching ability into action that benefits people disenfranchised from the workforce.

As the most trusted name in culinary education, we believe the Jacques Pépin Foundation is uniquely qualified to advance culinary training for our neediest, willing citizens.
